Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Protect yourself and your family by getting vaccinated against the flu—at no extra cost! A seasonal flu vaccination is recommended for everyone over the age of six months. If you are a BCBSRI member*, you can now get a flu shot with no out-pocket expenses at:

  • A participating pharmacy
    If you receive a flu shot at a participating pharmacy, you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket. Most Rhode Island pharmacies are participating—find one now. Please note that this benefit is not available for children under age 18 or at out-of-state pharmacies.
     
  • Your doctor
    If you’re going to your doctor simply to get a flu shot, you’ll pay nothing out of pocket. However, if other services, such as an office visit, occur on the same date, applicable copayments, deductibles, and/or coinsurances will apply.
     
  • Your Blue Store
    Visit our East Providence store for a free flu shot! There will be a clinic on Tuesday, October 17, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Find the store address and additional details (including shots for non-members) on the Your Blue Store page.
     
  • A flu vaccination clinic
    If you attend a flu clinic, simply give them your health plan ID number.

*This benefit is not available to Plan 65 members or members who only have dental coverage from BCBSRI.
